Students have scheduled a Saturday march in support of the Maryland Dream Act, which would allow illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition if their parents have paid taxes and they have attended Maryland schools.
The march is scheduled to proceed from the Maryland Multicultural Center in Langley Park to the University of Maryland, College Park.
They are marching to build support for a ballot question in November.
Around 1,000 students are expected to take part in the march, which will close with the students sharing their personal stories on campus.
A recent poll of 813 registered Maryland voters found widespread support for the Dream Act, with 58 percent of the respondents supporting the measure and 34 percent opposing it.
